Before I start, I want you to know I had this facial done on the 31st of December, 2020.
My skin was good to me for most of the year 2020, even on days where I couldn’t be bothered to do any skincare routine but this changed towards the end of the year.
I had one of these oh-so-frequent breakouts I get every now and then. The sad part about this one is that it happened 4 days before the new year. So, I decided to tackle this the fanciest and most comfortable way possible- letting someone else treat it for me.
That’s how I found myself at BISMID cosmetics store for a facial.
- Normal facial 3,000, towel -200 & extractor for acne – 500
- Whitening facial 5,000
- Facial for acne treatment 5,000
After having a conversation with one of the “facialists” I opted for a combination of whitening facial and the acne facial for my breakout. With a discount it totalled 7,000 naira instead of 10,000 naira.
Being the first time I’m getting a facial, the first time I’m ever leaving my skin to the hands of a stranger coupled with the fact that I was paying 7,000 naira to be rubbed on the face, I cried inside. On the bright side, I needed a professional treatment for my breakouts and that I feel like I got.
The whole facial lasted for around 2 hours and the steps included
- Acne treatment with Neutrogena oil free acne wash
- Washing again
- Honey mask and steaming
- Whitener (for the whitening)
I will go back for the 3,000 facial if I feel the need to be pampered but I don’t know when that will be since I have an idea of the routine. I’m undecided about this though.
All in all, I loved the experience. This may be cliche but I noticed instant relief to my breakouts. They were not completely gone but they did not sting or burn as usual. 2 days after, my breakouts were completely gone.
Their customer care was good, services were good except they had some light issues during my facial.
I ended up buying the acne face wash which I will put a review about soon enough.
